Tanarra is a Managing Director at Accenture Interactive, leading Design in the Midwest. Over her 20+ year career, she’s designed everything from corporate education programs to healthcare apps to business models, both as a consultant and as a member of “in-house” design teams.
Tanarra is a product of a very eclectic background. She’s been a dancer, cook, event planner, designer and — most recently — a mother, and she credits all of these experiences for inspiring her and informing the way she works at Accenture every day.
Today, she uses design every day to lead a dynamic design practice service clients in the Midwest, influencing clients globally, working to change businesses, experiences, products, and leave the world a little better than she found it. Hopefully.
Prior to joining Accenture, Tanarra held leadership positions at agencies in New York and Chicago. She was the Sr. Director of Design and Development at Playboy Enterprises and spent 3 years crafting JetBlue Airways internal eLearning practice.
Her introduction to digital design was as a graduate student at UCLA where she sought to build upon her BA in English Literature from University of Illinois.
